Funny license plates
In the modern society the demand for unique and personified items is growing stronger with every new thing that could be customised in any imaginable way. T-shirts with witty sayings, weird iPhone covers and laptop decals — all these things are selling better than the hot pies.
In some countries the government is playing along and making some more money by exploiting not only its citizens directly but by exploiting their never dimming desire to be a little bit more unique, to stand out of the crowd a little bit further.
In the United States the government is selling customised license plates. And it seems the sales are great.
